Paperbark Lodge centres on a former farmhouse on the Three Cities Tala Private Game Reserve. Its large fireplace and polished verandas have been beautifully restored.
The lodge combines a number of ideas and influences, reflected in the décor, merging dramatic wildlife paintings and wooden chairs with shale walls and ethnic statuettes.
Situated adjacent to Tala Restaurant and being a central lodge you have all the main activities at your doorstep.
Aloe Lodge enjoys an elevated view of the reserve that spans out over the grasslands, a favourite grazing area of the reserve’s antelope, giraffe and hippo.

Figtree is a fully serviced lodge for groups of up to ten. The lodge has an old-world farmstead atmosphere. With verandas around three sides of the house overlooking a waterhole and a boma braai area, the lodge has instant appeal and is completely relaxing.
Built by a team of artisans with locally sourced shale, Leadwood Lodge combines exceptional architecture, towering thatch and resplendent finishes against a backdrop of breath taking natural beauty. Leadwood is the residence and dream home of the reserve’s owner.
Our 2 gas operated self-catering rondavels situated in front of a private watering hole are perfectly placed in a remote area of the reserve. Each has an en-suite bathroom and separate braai facilities with a central boma.
